Popular Indie-blogger Stereogum Hacked

Its easy to get complacent with usernames and passwords, but the popular mp3 indie-blog Stereogum has received a rather jarring wake up call that has the blogosphere all a flutter. The daily read for many music fans (including glide) was apparently hacked due to Stereogum’s rather over-indie admin password of “sufjan.” Of course this could just be extremely jaded hacker humor, but as of late this morning, the site is still down.

A simple message reads:

Hello Scott.

What happened to my site?

Your server has been compromised on a root level and has at least 3-4 different exploits installed.

WTF? By whom? Pitchfork?

Perhaps SUFJAN was a poor password.

How am I gonna post that MP3 of snippets from every song on the new Dylan album? Sounds really promising! Heavy on the R&B swing that made Love And Theft his best album in decades.

Fix your fucking blog dude.

See for yourself: Stereogum
